Webinar | Does Compliance Program Need To Be Different Within The Corporates vs Financial Institutions?

Banks and financial institutions are under increasingly tight scrutiny on compliance and risk management. As the risk of money laundering continues to rise, compliance programs focusing on Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer have been implemented in banks and financial institutions.


Non-financial service corporations, on the other hand, are facing different risks such as corruption, bribery, fraud, human rights violations and labour abuses in supply chain opertaions, in additional to money laundering. Does compliance program within corporates need to be different from that of financial institutions? What are the common themes of compliance and risk management across sectors and industries?

  • The differentiators between financial institutions and corporates in compliance and risk management 
  • The major risks and compliance challenges facing non-financial service organisations
  • Why is third-party risk management important to corporates and how does it look like?
